Nieuwenhuis pulls off sly photobomb
There’s a certain art to photobombing a live television interview.
The photobomber wants to be seen, of course, but also wants to be subtle enough so as to not be obnoxious. He wants to be funny, but not stupid. Chris Bosh knows how it's done. So does the Cincinnati Bearcats baseball team. And Nick Saban.
Now you can add New York Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis to that illustrious list, too.
Technically, it was Nieuwenhuis, David Aardsma and LaTroy Hawkins who all put on a show behind Jeremy Hefner while Hefner was being interviewed by SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt on Tuesday night. But Nieuwenhuis’ goofy-faced, Bosh-esque submarine approach to the photobomb was executed to perfection and deserves to be recognized.
Here’s a gif of the epic interruption, via SB Nation:
Well done, Mr. Nieuwenhuis. Well done.
